I was inspired to read the story of CHP Officer Mike Remmel (Sonora) and his recovery to full duty. Each of us have faced, or will face, difficult times in our lives; sometimes we use those difficult situations to make excuses for friends, family and ourselves. Officer Remmel, whether he wants to be or not, is a leader to not only law enforcement but to our communities. I am amazed by his dedication and determination and will forever be inspired by his attitude, outlook and desire.
Someone once said, our greatest glory in life doesn't consist in failing, but rising when we fall. Thank you for printing such a fine story.
